Censorship

Is this sort of thing really justified? Most of the redirects were just there to make sure that one could link to a sub-topic clearly without invoking the whole complexity of the main topic, like teleological and spun death threat or there is no cabal, all of which are very specific subconcepts.

You can use the pipe trick like everyone else does. having quite obscure redirects does is not useful, especially those that were just created out of artistic creativity or for the fun of making RC do fun things in the fashion of "Don't think of an gray elephant." --Juxo 15:42, 24 Jul 2004 (EEST)
No, the pipe trick is a bad idea. We should always be trying to find the standard phrase that invokes the concept, not encouraging many anchor texts to proliferate each with some damn slant of their own. If a concept is very specific and so common and so recognized by multiple factions, that it would normally get an article of its own, and has to be defined as a specific persistent term, then the redirect is the right way to deal with it. If the concept is unique and specific and common, it deserves its own slot in the name-space, if only to prevent unconnected articles - especially on things like there is no cabal where people can write a lot of nonsense if they don't understand the history. Making what links here work as a way to find all the various perspectives on the topic is also extremely efficient compared to having to look at all the articles to see who was using the damn pipe trick.

Let's have a Consumerium:Proposed deletions page.

So I invoke a sock puppet of mine and then agree to deletion as myself? Quite useless and a waste of time. --Juxo 15:42, 24 Jul 2004 (EEST)
The main point is to require some TIME to think about these things and discuss the underlying conflicts of views and factions advancing them. NOtice trolls did NOT say to NAME the page "Votes for deletion" which is a kangaroo court, just "proposed deletions" to slow down whatever sysop vandalism might happen and provide a chance to fix articles in poor shape.
